Make ahead scrambled eggs

Can you make these eggs ahead of time?

Scrambled eggs are a great make ahead breakfast, perfect if your mornings are busy! Make the cauliflower scrambled eggs, then let them cool to room temperature before storing in a container in the fridge (click here for my favorite meal prep containers). They will keep well for around 3 to 4 days and you simply need to reheat them on the stovetop before serving.

Can you freeze scrambled eggs?

These scrambled eggs make for great freezer meals! Make up a couple of batches for fuss free breakfasts. Let the eggs cool completely before storing in ziplock bags or freezer safe containers. They will keep well for between 3 and 6 months.

Thaw the frozen eggs in the fridge overnight or quickly in the microwave. You can then reheat them on the stovetop to serve.

Make These Scrambled Eggs Your Own!

It’s really easy to make these eggs just to your taste, and it’s a great way to use up any bits and pieces you have in your fridge. Try adding in some diced bell pepper or onions when you brown the cauliflower. Feel free to mix up the cheese too with feta, goats cheese or other shredded cheese you have in your fridge.

Take Care Not To Over Cook The Eggs

Overcooked eggs can become rubbery in texture, so be sure not to cook them for too long. They will only take around 3 minutes to cook through. Remove the from the heat when they are just set.

Use Fresh Eggs

For the best scrambled eggs, make sure that your eggs are fresh. Place them in a bwol of water and if they sink to the bottom they’re fresh and good to use. If you can, buy free run / organic.
